1,500 vehicle to be use in transporting electoral materials and INEC staff on Saturday 16th of February 2019 to all the 18 local government area of Ondo state are been certified by the Federal Road Safety Corps Ondo Unit.
This was declared by Mr Adeleye Rotimi, the FRSC State Sector Commander to the newsmen during the training arranged for the FRSC men and officers.
Mr Adeleye said: “All vehicles to be used by INEC are to be certified by the FRSC”.
“What I mean by certification is that we will ensure we look at the vehicles and also ensure that all things about the vehicles are in place”.
“We don’t want a situation where a vehicle will convey electoral materials and discover that there is no fuel in it or to discover that the break fails or something funny happens”.
“So, we want to ensure that all the vehicles to be used by INEC are certified by the FRSC”.
He continued by saying, all the personnel in the state command are going to participate in the election, except those who have personal challenges.
Adeleye said that the command had partnered with INEC during a programme put together by the headquarters of FRSC on capacity building for officers and men of the FRSC.
“Any officer found wanting will be sanctioned in line with the electoral guidelines before other internal actions follow,” Adeleye warned.
Mr Adeleye said there will be some fake officers in uniform buy FRSC had put machinery in place to fish them out.
“You must put on your uniforms, your name tags and your identity cards must be with you”, says Adeleye.
